Reply with quote

I am working on platform migration project where the applications in Unisys mainframe have to be migrated to IBM mainframe. There will be a period of co-existence when some applications in IBM will have some kind of data/job dependency on the Unisys mainframe.
For example, Job1 will run in Unisys and will produce a file. This file will then be used by Job2 which will be run in IBM.
The question is How will the dependency be set up? How will the Job2 in IBM come to know that Job1 has finished and it has to be trigerred. IBM will use OPC as the job scheduler and Unisys has OpCON as the scheduler.

Please advise.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

How is "the file" to be made available to the mainframe - FTP or NDM, etc?

I'd suggest that you talk with the mainframe scheduling people and set up the mainframe job to start when the file arrives (by whatever means it used for the transfer).

Thanks for your suggestion. I guess FTP should be the better option for transferring the file.

Hello,

Yes, ftp works well and is on every system i've used for many years.

Good luck - someone will be here if there are questions or problems.

Hi !

You could solve your problem using the (RJE) Remote Job Entry.
